Nice -- thanks!

I think my setup would work fine if the slides could start stacking right above the boom. But with that slide lock sitting about a foot above the boom, those cringles don't have a chance to reach the reefing hook without removing the slides from the mast, even with the line.

But this information is helping me see the problem more clearly, so I'm sure I'll figure out a fix.
